About this sitter

Hello and thanks for considering us to care for your pets and home.

We are tidy, non-smoking animal lovers who have shared our lives with 10 dogs, 4 cats, a mouse and fish over the years. Our most recent pets were 2 Shelties and a cat, all of who lived 12-18 years, giving us extensive experience with both older pets and energetic puppies and kittens.

A former executive in the financial services sector, Garrett served 2 years as President of the Board of Four Paws for Ability, a US based non-profit that provides service dogs to disabled children around the world. I spent 4 years as a volunteer diver at the Newport Aquarium, feeding and observing the fish and other aquatic critters for health issues, interacting with patrons, and cleaning the big tanks from the inside. This included weekly dives in a tank full of rays, eels and huge sharks. Yikes!

We recently spent 2.5 years traveling the globe, immersing ourselves in other cultures and lavishing pets with love while their owners were away. We’re now exploring the world full time, and we'd love to care for and play with your furry friends as part of our travels.

We prefer stays of at least a week, but will accept shorter sits if we’ll be in the area at the right time, or it’s a super cool sit.

We love animals, meeting new people, exploring new places and being of service. We are the pet sitters that will allow you to truly enjoy your time away, knowing your home and pets are well cared for, loved and protected. We'd love to watch over your home and lavish some love on your furry friends while you're away.

Please contact us today to learn how we can help you have a wonderful, worry-free holiday!

Karen and Garrett

Why they want to house sit

We love both animals and travel, and pet/house sitting gives us the opportunity to stay in homes in various locations while loving, caring for, and playing with other people's pets. We can't have pets of our own right now, so we do the next best thing: temporarily adopting other people's pets from time to time!

Their experience

Yes, we have had the pleasure to sit with over 50 pets, both in the US and around the world.

Also, Karen is certified in Pet First Aid by the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA).
